25) A

Score of the person right now = 2 + 7 = 9

Score of first friend = (4 + 7) x 2 = 22
Score of second friend = 5 + 8 = 13
Score of third friend = 2 + 9 = 11

Highest position possible for the person is 1st.

In order to finish first, the person would have to swap their lowest value card with the highest value card from friend 1 to break the friend 1’s pair.

So the person would swap their 2 with friend 1’s  7.
Now the person has a score of = 7 + 7 = 14

They will be first because:
Friend 1 has a score of = 4 + 2 = 6
Friend 2 has a score of = 5 + 8 = 13
Friend 3 has a score of = 9 + 2 = 11
